is it ok to clean infected ear piercings with peroxcide?
You CAN, however rubbing alcohol or peroxide can dry out your ear, cause irritation and itching. If you use the peroxide, be sure to use a Q-tip to avoid exposing your ear to unnecessary amounts of it; it'll also help get around the jewelry.
The best thing to use, and what piercers carry in the shops, is a sea salt mix. You can make this mix using sea salt (found in most stores) and water and soaking the piercing (usually 3-4 times a day).
You shouldn't remove the jewelry to clean it. Doing so will trap the bacteria in your ear and cause bigger problems.
Peroxide is okay for ear piercings. My ears are very sensitive and they close up if I don't have earrings in for a few days, so I constantly have to shove it through. Anyway, I always use peroxide. :)
peroxide isnt always good for any piercing. just use sum dial soap with water. and un-iodized sea salt. or you can get the spray its called H20cean. I got it from hot topics. it works good.
Clean it with salt water with a drop of tea tree oil in it. Sorted out my tragus and nape piercing quickly.
Peroxide is TERRIBLE for piercings. Use alcohol instead, like rubbing alcohol.
